Learn more, improve faster and enjoy the game! For more then 25 years I have been a PGA Professional in the greater Lansing, Michigan area; teaching
and coaching players of various ages, skill and experience levels. My teaching facility is located at Meridian Sun Golf Club where I offer both private instruction and group golf lessons, depending on
your preference. My goal through this website is to assist you in your learning and enjoyment of the game of golf.
My teaching philosophy comes from a balance of playing competitive golf, teaching hundreds of golf lessons and clinics, coaching high school golf and extensive study. A cornerstone of my extensive golf library is Sir Walter Simpson's 1887 Classic "The Art of Golf". I believe that golf is a game for everyone and that playing it is more an art than a science.
The evolution of computers, high speed cameras, the I-pad and launch monitors, science has given us better tools with which to understand and teach the mechanics of the golf swing. But a golfer must take this knowledge and blend it with emotion, strategy, self control and humility to play his or her best.
Robert Forgan said it best:
"Golf is deceptively simple, endlessly complicated. A child can play it well, and a grown man can never master it. Any single round if it is full of unexpected triumphs and seemingly perfect shots that end in disaster. It is almost a science, yet it is a puzzle without an answer. It is gratifying and tantalizing, precise and unpredictable. It requires complete concentration and total relaxation. It satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect. It is at the same time rewarding and maddening - and it is without a doubt the greatest game mankind has ever invented."
